About this author

Tracy Darity was born, raised, and currently resides in St. Petersburg, Florida. She is the mother of three daughters, Morgan, Jasmin, and Shaunte. Tracy currently works in the benefits industry as a Relationship Manager but has long dreamed of becoming a published author.

As a child she had a creative imagination and a love for reading. In her early teens she began writing short stories as a hobby. It was not until she attended the 1997 Essence Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana, that she decided she wanted to fulfill her dream of becoming a novelist. The words of Tavis Smiley inspired her.

“Baby, God ain't gonna bless you with another woman's husband, not today, not tomorrow, not ever.”
Tracy L. Darity, Love...Like Snow in Florida on a Hot Summer Day

“It must be an awful feeling to have love all around you and not feel loved, to be in need and unable to accept whats being offered, to see a world of possibilities but trapped inside your own mind.”
Tracy L. Darity

“Since the beginning of Humanities every era has had an elitist group that attempted to dictate what is and is not acceptable forms of art. As time has moved on, what is considered the “peasant” class or the lower echelons of society have overwhelmingly gone against the elitist point of view. Without that continuous evolution art would not be where it is today…enjoyed by the masses.”

“Life is a journey, not a destination; there are no mistakes, just chances we've taken.”

“Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby.. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit!”
